With strong commitments to community partnership and public impact, the Tompkins Chamber and Finger Lakes Independence Center are collaborating to present strategies for providing quality services to people with disabilities and help you answer questions you and your staff may have.
The webinar will summarize methods employers may use in their businesses/organization. Emily Papperman

• The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and service animal requirements
• Facility accommodations
• How to accommodate and interact with customers with disabilities
• Serving customers with disabilities during COVID 19
• Discuss and solve hypothetical scenarios that you can apply to your own business
The format of the webinar will be a 45 minute presentation of information followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
